    Well i have been debating for awhile if i was going to buy the Headlight/Tail light covers that are plastic smoked but would be way to dark on my Aftermarket lights i have since there black already. The VHT nightshade i thought i wouldn't do since i paid way too much $$$ for my lights to mess them up and came across the Tint for the lights on Ebay.

    The Tint is allot like window tint the way you put it on but how it's made its much different and way more flexible. I bought the 2 Pre Cut kit's made for my 08 silverado for $40 so if it is too dark i can very easily take it off unlike the Spray tint. I will receive them sometime end of week i'm thinking or early next week and also have to install my Smoked Recon cab roof lights but will try to install both soon as i can. I have to put my truck in the shop Wed. to see what the deal is and after i spend that $$ to get it fixed will need to save some $$$ for a few weeks to get these things installed. I will keep everyone updated and post pics!

    Well a few days ago my truck wasn't anything wrong with it and was running normal until i tried to crank it up and leave and it wouldn't start! Well along with that my key pad on my key chain wouldn't lock or unlock my truck and everything would turn on but my Radio! The Truck would not even attempt to turn over at all what so ever. The next day i tried to crank it and the power was all gone no lights or anything would turn on. I pulled the battery got it tested it was shot so i bought a new one and installed it and all the lights came back on.

    Well i also had a Service 4 wheel drive/ Service tire monitor and Service air bag on my dash and had no clue why they were on! I almost just said i will get it towed since Insurance would cover it and would be fixed soon, but when i was getting everything out before i got it towed i tried to unlock with my key pad on key chain and it worked like it normally would! So i decided to put the key in ignition and turned it and everything worked for lightining and the Radio also turned back on and instead of not hearing anything when i tried to crank the truck it would just click everytime and the Service 4 wheel drive, air bag and tire monitor warnings all went away!

    I went ahead and unplugged the battery and unplugged the plug from the Starter to try to take it off and get it tested tomorrow. I'm thinking it's my Alternator or Starter or slight chance Spark plugs, but my battery is getting drained from what ever it is so does anyone have any idea? Suggestions...

    sounds like a short somewhere....
    that only gives you about 2398495 places to look though...
    i say at least for the lights that are on get a voltimeter and test their circuits

    oh, and definitely want to see pics of that tint!

    I'm thinking it could be a short somewhere but i'm thinking also that my starter or alternator or even ignition switch or spark plugs could be bad. I will start checking tomorrow and getting them tested until i figure it out i'll have all day lol

    Hey i checked my alternator and starter and both are good and working and had to get new battery since the other one was drained. I'm thinking it might be the Anti Theft Lock on my truck with my Auto Start and security system it's made by Python. The dash has the anti theft lock showing up on the truck so most likely it's the auto start/security system refusing to start for that matter. I also think there maybe a short in the wires fot it also. I just got it towed about 10 min. ago to the GM dealership and Towing was FREE but should find out next week just what it is and have it back hopefully!

    Well i ended up buying the head light/ tail light tint pre cut. I also decided to buy the Dark Smoke film to match it's a 24"x24" sheet that way i can do my 3rd brake light and also my turn signals on my tow mirrors. I also bought the tools and spray needed to put them on so i want have any problems. They will be here next week but maybe a week or so until i get around too it.
